Submitted by the Event Organizer
Celebrate the launch of The Collage Museum of San Francisco with “Rude, Glued & Screwed,” a new group exhibition at Grant’s Tomb Gallery. The North Beach museum will showcase local, national and international artists who work in the medium of collage, photo-montage, assemblage and related disciplines.
There is a long and colorful 200 year history of artists and creative individuals working in this field from the early 19th century and throughout the 20th century as well as an explosion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.

Grant’s Tomb Crypt, 50-A Bannam Place, SF (near Union and Grant – look for the red door)
Curated by Winston Smith
- René Apallec – Mysterious and obscure, his compositions call out to us from a long vanished world that has since been swept away by the tumultuous era of the Great War
- Peter Lewis – Technicolor psychedelic dreamscapes
- Francesca Berrini – off kilter compositions like dinosaurs who frolic with beloved biblical personages
- Winston Smith – so-called hacker “art” has defaced the covers of countless low-life punk bands from Dead Kennedys to D.O.A. to Green Day
- Erik Chipchase – ironic classic graphic style is a unique blend of Proletarian Deco and Retro-Chic
- Casey Lewis – A true trip through abstract Jazz put to paper
